Available Now: Figment Complete Collection TPB

Now available from your favorite comic shop, the new Disney Kingdoms: Figment trade paperback collects the original Figment mini-series from 2014 and the sequel mini-series from 2015 in one book for a great price.

This was the first published project I wrote for Marvel and I’m really proud of how it turned out. Hearing from Disney fans that they enjoyed the comic and that it rekindled their love for the Figment and Dreamfinder has been a thrill.


One of Disney’s most popular characters – Figment, the ever-curious star of Epcot’s mind-bending attraction Journey into Imagination – stars in all-new adventures! Dive into a steampunk fantasy story revealing the origin of the astonishing inventor known as Dreamfinder, and learn how one little spark of inspiration created the purple dragon called Figment!

Our daring duo explore the realms of imagination, finding friends and foes alike – but back on Earth, a clockwork army is assembling under the command of the frightening force known only as the Singular!

And when Dreamfinder and Figment find themselves in a time and place not their own, mysteries unfold – and old friends return! Can the imaginative adventurers put their heads together to help stop the world from falling into darkness?
